The Luncheon on the Grass by the French artist Edouard Manet is celebrated as the first "Modern" art painting. Exhibited in 1863, this groundbreaking image shocked the art world and ignited a fierce debate about nudity, social conventions, and the role of art in society. In 1865, the exhibit of his Olympia painting created a scandal that required guards to protect the painting from outraged viewers. In an overview of this remarkable artist's tumultuous career, you'll learn why he's called "the father of Modernism."
